Greece's tennis star, Stefanos Tsitsipas produced a near flawless performance in the first round of the Australian Open, beating Italian Salvatore Caruso 6-0, 6-2, 6-3 in just over 100 minutes on Margaret Court Arena.
"I definitely feel like I'm more experienced now. Last year I did feel more as a kid who was trying to get confidence by doing certain things on the court... Now I feel like I'm more mature and more conserved in my thinking. I also think what I feel now compared to before, I'm just very sure with myself. I don't really doubt myself that much," he said post match.
He will now face Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber in the second round.
